The first challenge issued to the members of SBS25 was to make 5 cards using the same image and the same colours. Didn't sound too hard. Then why did I find it so difficult?
I decided to make Christmas cards as I have a Christmas Stamp-a-Stack coming up at the end of August and I needed samples. I just love the Season of Joy stamp set so that choice was easy. Then I had to select the colours. I wanted to use at least 2 of the current (Australia-NZ) In Colours so I went to the '08 In Colour Combo chart that SU has for demostrators. I chose Groovy Guava, Wild Wasabi, Close to Cocoa and So Saffron. I added Brushed Gold to the mix for a bit of sparkle.
Here's the cards I came up with.
I used Wild Wasabi double stitched ribbon on two of the cards and the retired Gold Organdy ribbon on a third. I used a different colour base card for each card. I'm not 100% happy with all of them but I think, as a group, I like them.
What do you think?
